You may see two different sign-in methods depending on your browser and most recent sign-in. Either one will work exactly the same way.
1. Enter your Username
2. Enter your Password
3. Place a checkmark in the "Remember Me" box if you would like your password remembered so that you don't have to type it each time you sign-in. If you would prefer not to have your password saved, do not place a checkmark in the "Remember Me" box.
4. Click the "Sign In" button or click "Enter" on your keyboard to gain access to the site.
Manage Your Profile:
The "Manage Profile" section is your administrative tool to update and edit your CABA member profile; add sub-accounts; manage your groups, blogs, files, links, photos, and subscriptions; edit your notification preferences; post job openings and more. It is critical to your networking success to keep your profile up-to-date and to encourage others to visit it.
My Personal Page:
This is the area of your administrative control panel where you can edit nearly every portion of your CABA member profile. The following areas of your CABA member profile can be edited, changed, or updated from here:
•Your Profile Photo
•Your Account Information (including: Personalized URL, Username/Password and Email Address)
•Your Personal Information (Full Name)
•Your Additional Information (including: Keywords, More Information)
•Your Contact Information (including: Organization Name, Title, Profession, Website, Address, Phone, Fax, etc.)
To make changes in any of these locations, choose "[Edit]" from the associated navigation bar. Make your changes. The next 2 steps are very important or your information will NOT be saved
2. Click the "Save Changes" button
Updating Your Preferences:
1. Sign on with your User name and Password
2. In “My Profile” box, click on "Manage Profile"
3. Click on “Preferences”
4. Check and ‘uncheck’ the alerts that you wish or do not wish to receive
5. Hit “Save my Settings”
This is the area where you manage the Groups that you belong to. Everyone is part of the CABA Main Community. You may also choose to join a committee and therefore would become a part of that Group. You can send Group emails and messages from here.
Join a Group:
1. Go to the Group Home Page
2. Choose a Committee
3. Press “Request Membership”
Your request will go through an approval process, and once approved, you’ll find information related to the committee work on this Group Home Page.
•You can send one email every 7 days
•The email must pertain to the CABA member's business or another CABA member’s business
•In the subject line, please type: CABA: (then your subject) so everyone on the receiving end knows you are a CABA Member
•Be certain to put your name, business name and contact information at the bottom of the email so members know whom it is coming from.
Send a Group Email to all registered CABA members:
2. On “My Profile”, click on "Groups"
3. Hover your cursor over the wrench icon next to the CABA Main Community: CABA Members
4. Click on "email all group members.”
5. Type your email (this is text only but you may insert a URL link)
6. Hit Submit. This will reach all registered CABA Members.
Register for an Event:
Remember, our Wednesday events are free to attend and do not require registration! If you are attending anything other than a Wednesday event, it is best to register ahead to secure your spot and to save yourself time at the event with on-site registration and payment.
1. Go to the CABA Calendar
2. Find the event you would like to register for and click on the event
3. Hit “Register”
4. Fill in the Required info for registration and payment
5. Hit Submit
6. Wait for the receipt showing that your payment went through and you are officially registered
If you do not see a Register button, that means that the event is free to attend and no registration is required. You can also click on the Calendar icon located next to the event title to export the event information to your own Outlook calendar.
Set Up a SubAccount:
The CABA website, www.usecaba.com, records the Primary contact person for your business membership as the “Master Account”. If you would like to have additional members of your business enjoy a profile of their own, you can set up a SubAccount for up to 2 additional people from your business. They will also be able to create their own profile, send and receive e-mails and messages, sign up for events, join committees, and much more. It will also double or triple your exposure when someone is "searching" for your company on the website.
It is quick and easy to do:
1. Sign into your Profile
2. Hit “Manage Profile:”
3. Select "Sub-accounts" under Information and Settings.
•Hit “Create SubAccounts” in the yellow shaded box to create it yourself
•Send the link to whoever you would like to have a SubAccount and they can sign up themselves
•Invite them to create their own SubAccount by entering the email address in the box and hitting “Send Invite”
Note: all subaccounts created will go through a back-end approval process before the new SubAccount is officially a Member. Once approved, they can conduct the same profile functions as described in the instructions above.
